Supporting Social Prescribing Clients with Debt and Budgeting Challenges

This webinar, provided by Bromley-by-Bow insights, will help London's social prescribing link workers (SPLWs) support clients with debt and budgeting challenges in the current cost of living crisis context.

As the cost of living crisis deepens, significant numbers of social prescribing clients will be struggling with managing their budgets and falling into arrears with important payments such as energy, rent and council tax.

This autumn and winter, SPLWs can play a key role in identifying clients who need support with debt and managing their money and helping them to access it.

The session will cover the following topics:

  • understanding the current situation, what is happening with the cost of living crisis, and the effects of clients' budgets, debts and arrears
  • what help is available to clients that SPLWs can signpost and refer clients to, including how the government's support will work
  • case studies of good practice of social prescribing schemes working closely with debt advice and financial capability projects
  • where SPLWs can find more information.
